Tank

Oh my – things are tough at the moment!

I’ve managed to survive birthday fortnight – Adele’s and Oliver’s and now am in the midst of my husbands end of year assignments and end of year school report writing – uggh!

I have a few small projects to show, but my models are becoming increasingly reluctant to appear in front of the camera.

Today I have a simple tank to share with you. I used the tiny pocket tank pattern, but for some reason the armscye ended up a little tight – only a little, but I’ll still wear it.

I wish the photos were a little better. I finished making this weeks ago, but was so unhappy with the photos I haven’t blogged them. However, I needed something to show here and a few kids garments draped on hangers or a shirt dress awaiting buttons isn’t interesting blog fodder really.

The fabric is a Liberty cotton knit that I purchased from Shaukat. It is a good stable knit, perfect for a tank. I used left over coordinating mustard coloured ponte to finish the tank.

Tis all I have for now. Fingers crossed I find some time to relax at the machine this week.

Cost:
Pattern: Tiny Pocket Tank – used before = Free
Fabric: 1m Liberty knit inc part postage = $26
Binding: Remnant of ponte = free
Total = $26

  • Cute tank.The mustard trim is a interesting touch. I plan to cut out a few of these over the next week. I'm in the middle of reporting too – right now in fact! Serious procrastinating going on here. The distraction of your tank is a welcome break from writing English comments.

  • Tank looks great, I really need to get some liberty knit fabric – I keep admiring it when I see it made up by you and Sew Brunswick. I have a cotton voile ( i think) remnant from Tessuti in the design you were asking for the swim suit remnant recently. Its earmarked for the TPT, but its still a couple down the list…one day

  • Tank looks great. I am in the process of writing up some report comments too, but still having to wait as I haven't completed all my latest assessments. hope you get some sewing time this week.

  • Love the trim on it. Too cute. Good luck for machine time!

  • The bias finish is a lovely contrast and the fit is just right! Cheers, Karen

  • Oh I like! Not your usual liberty print and I love the touch of mustard.

  • Great minds think alike 😉 love your fabric choice and the contrast binding. Got to get my fabric and get started on this one!

  • I hope you get through your boring stuff so you can get back to sewing soon. And isn't it close enough to Christmas to threaten the kids with it? I've started saying it around here…..
